The Australian trucking industry uses the Global Positioning System (GPS) as its main tracking system. A satellite dish connects the moving truck to the driver. This enables the weight of the truck to be monitored. It also allows the driver's behavior to be tracked, in terms of speed, stops, starts, etc. The truck is tracked in real time.
